Royal Bachelor: Prince Amedeo of Belgium

Ah, Belgium, land of delicious chocolate, fruity beers, and mussells and pomme frites (mayonnaise on the side!). Belgium is also the home country for this week's royal bachelor, Prince Amedeo, who just turned 25. The monarchy in Belgium is a young one, the first King of the Belgians was Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, uncle to both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and widower of Princess Charlotte of Wales.

Prince Amedeo, who is 7th in line for the throne, is the son of Princess Astrid of Belgium (once tipped as a potential bride for Prince Charles if it hadn't been for her religion, she's Catholic) and Archduke Prince Lorenz of Austria-Este.  The heir to the House of Austria-Este is reputed to be serious, thoughtful and ambitious (he certainly looks it in the photo on the left). Educated at London School of Economics, he is a reserve officer in the Belgian army.

American Princess wannabes take heart.  Prince Amedeo works for Deloitte in New York, where he ran the marathon in 2008. No need to book a plane to Brussels, you can just hop one to New York. I'm sure that job applications for the New York office of Deloitte went off when Prince Amedeo was recently featured in The Fresh Princes of New York article in Page Six magazine of The New York Post. Not to mention, all those girls who previously had never put on a pair of running shoes, are probably jogging around the resevoir in Central Park as I write this, hoping to catch a glimpse of him. Like most Princes, he also enjoys rugby, and speaks several languages fluently.

Rumor has it that he has a girlfriend but nobody has been able to confirm it. He doesn't look like a party animal, but no doubt he hangs out at cultural institutions in the city. One could do worse than to read The New York Social Diary, Town and Country or Quest Magazine to see where the Prince might be located or just hang out in any of the trendy bars and restaurants in the Financial District or the Upper East Side. Belgian consulate events n'est pas?

Dear MissAlicia Rochelle Wickham ! Please answer, where you have this information about the Prince? This is a nonsense, really, I was with him in college, it is possible that he did not remember, but I know that Amedeo is a very decent young man raised as a befitting dignity. He could not do that .. I ask you to respond to my personal e-mail , not to pursue the matter in public comments .... I would be very grateful for your response. Sincerely ,Aleksndr Romanov

Dear MissAlicia Rochelle Wickham ! I wonder why you wrote it. Because on the one hand simple and on the other not. I hope you understand what I mean.

The time this article was written, he's already in a relationship with his now wife, Elisabetta Maria Rosboch. They've been in a relationship since 2007. Lucky woman... Amedeo's intelligent, hardworking, kind, sweet and loyal. No doubt that thing Ms. Wickham said is purely fiction. God bless Amedeo. I hope he would vote me to bs his brother Joachim's wife ^^
